Lighting Up

Last night I was paid by the city 0f Chicago to sit on a boat in Lake Michigan and light fireworks. It was profoundly easy and soothing to do the lighting.

I’ve always liked starting fires. My parents taught me when I was five. They were heavy smokers and there were matches and lighters all over the place. They knew I was curious and would try it out on my own. To keep the house from burning down, they taught me by having them light their cigarettes and pipes. I didn’t mind because I like being of service.
